Whatever you do, do not miss walking through the EXPO
, where many of the JSM sponsors have booths. While you can pick up novelties, there are also many academic, employer (i.e., recruiter), and publisher booths. The EXPO is also where you will find Spotlight Denver, allowing you to experience a little bit of the city, grab a coffee, or even have your picture taken with fun props.
The ASA Store
is usually in the EXPO. ASA merchandise (e.g., shirts, jackets, coffee mugs) can be purchased there. Also, shirts from previous JSMs can be purchased there at a discount.
In the years before portable devices with email and internet access became ubiquitous, JSM began offering the Cyber Center
. There usually is not a long wait to access the internet or send a quick email at these computer kiosks. If your cell phone battery is low and you need to make a reservation, head there!
